Steeler / KC

Plenty has changed since 2018, especially in the careers of Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

That’s the last time we saw these two battle it out on the gridiron. As will be the case this Sunday.

Now, think back to that game. In 2018, Patrick Mahomes was a young up and comer, and we didn’t know much about what he was about.

We quickly learned, and at that time, Roethlisberger was one of the most consistent and prolific quarterbacks in the league.

What a difference a couple of years makes. Fresh off leading the league in passing, Ben was back then. Now on that thing, Mahomes had his coming out.

46 touchdowns in a game that saw 79 combined points and ten total touchdowns accounted for between Big Ben and Money Mahomes.

Mahomes tossed six through the air. Roethlisberger threw for three and ran in another and a 40 to 37 chiefs win at Heinz Field.

This time around, it should be much different, probably lower scoring. Mahomes is without a stop to weapons Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce on the coveted list, at least as of now.

Of course, they could come off before Sunday, but it’s touch and go. And the Steelers offense is in the bottom half of the league in terms of production.

“That’s OK because Ben Roethlisberger knows him and Mahomes better don’t have to go shot for shot and rack up points in order for his team, the Steelers to come out on top.
Which isn’t always the easiest thing to do when you watch an offense like that, but you know, taking care of the ball is obviously huge not turning it over, which we did last week,
which is a, you know, key to victory so we can not turn it over if we can try.”And um, you know, even in a team like this, you say, OK, if you possess the ball, that helps, but they can obviously score really fast and do some amazing things. So we just got to be smart to play our game, like you say, and that’s going to be the key no matter what’s happened.”

“And I think that’s one of the things I’m going off your question from from earlier is, you know, we’re not we may not be doing well early, but but it does. No one really ever panics.
You know, it’s like, OK, let’s find a way to get back into it. And whether it’s play calling or plays, guys aren’t really stressing. Which I think is shows a lot of growth.”
